ADVANCE PRAISE FOR "THE MAN WHO MADE VERMEERS""" "From the outrageous swindles he perpetrated in Vermeer's name to the nefarious dealings he had with the Nazis in occupied Holland, Han van Meegeren's is an unforgettable, almost unbelievable story. Witty, erudite, and utterly compelling, Jonathan Lopez's account of the twentieth century's most notorious art forger is a must-read--a book that makes Van Meegeren's fake Vermeers even more fascinating, I dare say, than the Delft master's originals."--Caroline Weber, author of "Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution"
Re-spins the van Meegeren saga...in profoundly researched, focused, absorbing depth. -- The New Yorker, October 27, 2008
My advice: Get a copy of Jonathan Lopez's terrific new book, "The Man Who Made Vermeers." It's so jam-packed and nicely written that you'll burn right through it. -- The Los Angeles Times, September 29, 2008
One of the most audacious careers in the annals of art fraud -- a journey superbly etched by Jonathan Lopez in his absorbing history "The Man Who Made Vermeers." -- Salon.com, August 14, 2008
Mr. Lopez is steeped in the literature of the period and it shows to fine effect. -- The New York Sun, August 26, 2008
Lopez has added greatly to our understanding of the subject. -- The New York Review of Books, November 6, 2008
A wonderful book and perfectly done. -- The Compulsive Reader, August 9, 2008
First-rate research and narrative skill propel this tale of greed, war and skillful manipulation of the popular imagination. -- Kirkus, July 1, 2008
A rich trove of reference not only for van Meegeren, but also for the art world between the wars and the forces that shaped opinions and destinies during that troubled period. -- The New Criterion, November 2008 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description
